[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
In the last days many different species of flies were resting on leafs in the warm sun - sometimes not very shy like this one.
Because the body colour pattern is not visible it is not possible for me to identify the species for sure.
It is probably:
-- Eristalis tenax
-- Diptera, Syrphidae

Body length: about 12 mm.

- natural light (no flash)
- ISO 400
- no tripod
- original picture only slightly cropped

Fantastic photo with super Sharpness! I really like this! Please let me vie the Exif-info and tell us moro about the PP work in the computer. And I do not understand the label "nearly a bald head".

Thanks for sharing/Bengt

Hi Peter,
Excellent detail and very good POV. I agree with Jan about the grain, although I suppose light conditions may have imposed your ISO setting.

Hello Peter,
Beautifully close-up picture of this hoverfly. All details clearly seen. Nicely composed and well seen. Regards,

Hallo Peter,
Schaerfe, Farben und die Details sind einmalig. Nur mit dem Hintergrund bin ich heut mal nicht so ganz zufrieden, da rauscht es ein wenig. Ansonsten ist dein Macro super.
